Views/comments on Max and/or open source for uni project.

Having learned so much from the Max community/forums I've decided to base my dissertation on how tools created using easy access/open source materials compare to high price manufacturers. To do this, I have had to rely heavily on this community/forum to learn about Max and solve various issues whilst returning the favour and helping others, where I can. For my write-up I would like to talk about the views of everyone involved in the community including those who have just started using the community/forums or those who spend time debugging patches or producing free code.
I would appreciate anything you have to say about the community/forums, open-source software or high price manufactured products. Here's a few questions to help but feel free to to talk about what you want :)
How have the communities/forums helped you? Why do you provide open source software instead of charging? Did you get involved with Max to create a tool cheaper than it would be to purchase or because nothing else was available? How do the tools created in open-source/Max compare against high price manufacturers? What are the benefits/disadvantages of using Max/open-source code to create sellable products? How much time do you think you spend helping on the forums in a week?
